Before proceeding forward in explaining the affinity between AutoCAD and Fiber Optic, it would be prudent to rationalize the utility of optical cables. When communicating between systems, either via the internet or via an internal network system, a medium needs to be in place that can facilitate transmission of data, both sending and receiving.
Although there are numerous options available for laying down communication mediums, such as coaxial cable, DSL, phone lines, etc. However, of all these options the most favored one is optical cables as it offers uninterrupted swift data transmission. In theory, the optical cable is composed of an assimilation of glass wires and each glass wire has the capability of transmitting data by transforming them into light waves. In short, the worrying factor of bandwidth is ruled out and data packets can be transmitted in abundance.
Furthermore, optical cables are less prone than other communication mediums and hence they invulnerable to interference. Optical cables are thin and occupy less space. In the end, the fundamental difference of installing fiber cables is that the data is transmitted digitally as opposed in analog form.
The “ITS-NET DESIGN” is a essentially a software, which has been developed to create FTTH/FTTX graphical and in-depth network blueprint. The scope is to ensure reporting of all pertinent paraphernalia and installation guidelines as per the project specifications. The full version of the application, with ITS-NET DESIGN functionality, strengthens the designing, drawing and engineering function of FTTH/FTTX.
However, during the designing and drawing phase of the optical network, the developer needs to keep in mind that there are certain limitations to it. Firstly, all the optical cables are an expensive material and its installation requires utmost care. The developer should know the maximum threshold of “bent radius” as it could easily break. Even adding tension, pressure on the optical cable can cause twisting.
Since a large part of technology and communication is slowly converging from traditional metal sheets to new optical cables, a substantial chunk of communication industry has engaged design engineers, who are well versed with CAD / CAM-related applications. The major sectors include corporations conducting their business operations in telecommunication, internet and television cable.
Since, the global scenario is entering into a cutthroat competition, industry leaders want to take advantage of this scenario and engage developers who can remodel their existing network topology. They are eyeing for engineers who are fluent in engineering and drafting services and know all the dynamics in the process of designing and drawing. Particularly, the civil engineers and project managers are in much demand.
Preferably, the designing and drawings should be on a large-scale infrastructure. To put it forward simply, a civil engineers must have the ability to create a synergy between dynamics of both the applications, and produce designs and drawings.
